HELP NEEDED PLEASE - 8 week old baby screams and writhes 24/7
Hiya, I need some help as to my baby. He is 8 weeks and 5 days old, and it has been 8 weeks of 2 hours sleep a night for me and my husband and we are ABSOLUTELY EXHAUSTED.
Baby screams and writhes basically 24/7. He is near impossible to get burps out of no matter what position we try. We have taken him to a and e twice because he just screams si much his lips went blue. They said he has reflux. I don't agree....I KNOW it's wind, if u jump him up and down you can hear it.
He takes an hour to have a bottle and then screams for an hour afterwards. Poor poor baby. When he eventually calms down and drops off to sleep, he will sleep for a few minutes and rhen writhe around for the rest of his sleep.
He is on nutramigin milk because the doctors are scratching their heads what is wrong with him. So trying the milk allergy line
During his feed he is on and off the bottle, really fussy. Hence it takes so jolly long. The wind is stopping him from taking it.
He is on ranitidine for his reflux, infacol for the wind, and the milk in case it's an allergy. We also give him probiotics. He also has carobel in his milk to thicken it-however that's givinghim constipation. He has also had his tongue tie cut. He is on dr browns bottles too.
Can someone tell me when it wil end? And can someone give me some advise on what to do about his wind? I don't need positions or techniques as such unless u have a miracle one! We have tried every technique under the sun it seems!!!!
Many thanks and look forward to lots of responses...i really need a miracle!
